I stole it from [personal profile] tree , because I want to feel accomplished despite having not written anything. (And also, I'm procrastinating on reading the second half of Mill on the Floss, which scarred me in my sensitive adolescence.)

I've been thinking for awhile of putting all my serious meta together in some easily accessible place, since I get asked for particular links often enough, and I've posted enough that it's inconvenient to search my meta tag. It's very much a work in progress right now, but I tried to include the ones that people most often ask me about, use the most recent links, and add a brief description for each, as my titles tend to the unhelpful.

When I wrote last year's au_bigbangs, I vaguely referred to two other fandoms within the stories - for the lulz! - and then amused myself by stuffing as many references to as many others of mine as I could shove in. I always meant to do a proper attribution post, but just ... forgot. But now I've remembered! So here they are. (The citations are in white, so feel free to guess if it amuses you.)

Yes, these go on forever, and I went off on tangents at pretty much every opportunity. This, of course, is one of them -- the whole thing is my response to maybe one paragraph, and at that, rather tangentially related to it. It's a little shorter, though, since I'm now trying to separate these into vaguely cohesive units, though.

And I think this is the last of the end (...lol) of the year stuff. I look on it as a sort of meme and borrowed the format from[personal profile] lettered.

I ranted about Han's skeeviness in ESB for yesterday, so I'm doing the unpopular opinions today! Though probably not for every conceivable fandom.

And [personal profile] tree just reminded me that I have been slacking on my mission to spread memes like a bacterial outbreak, so here are some proper ones.

Memes! )
anghraine: leia in the death star cell; text: distressing damsel (distressing damsel)
I keep running across a not-quite-trope -- an argument -- that I find immensely problematic. I'm going to talk about it now, through my own feminism, which may not be yours. Consider yourself warned for that, along with discussions of violence and sexual assault.

Title: First Impressions (6/13, 7/13)

Fanverse: First Impressions

Blurb: Jane goes to the Gardiners' and Henry to the Collinses'; Henry meets Lady Catherine, Anne, Colonel Fitzwilliam, and (once again) Catherine; many hints are dropped.

Maybe I should just have hatred empowers us as a tag.

It’s rather awkward when you run across conversations you’d really like to be involved in but … you aren’t, and even if it wouldn’t be inappropriate to butt in, it feels sort of pointless. So I’m just going to be passive-aggressive and declare this

I'm way behind on my replies, but eh, whatever. At least I'm nearly done with 10, which has been a sloooow chapter. Though it sped up about the time that that Luke saved himself from the flesh-eating beetles. (It makes sense in context.)

(Maybe.)

So, a bunch of memes before I finish up 10 and head straight into 11, which I probably won't have cause to answer, but ... meh. (At the moment, that's rather my response to anything. *eyes posting date*)

Okay, maybe not quite afternoon. Anyway.

Oh! There was an interesting essay on Slave Leia here. I pretty much agree on the in-story level, and completely disagree on the meta-level; I think it's gratuitous fanservice, its use of valuable screentime shortchanges other plotlines (most notably the Vader-Luke one which is kind of the main point), the blatant male gaze-iness makes it uncomfortable for me to even watch, and Carrie Fisher's forced weight loss makes it still worse. And ... well, I won't bother recapping, since I covered all my feelings on it in this essay. So I do think Fangirl gave the men who came up with that sequence way too much credit.

Back to meming!

Carrying on in the hour or so I have before writing class...hm, I should probably work on my story for that class too, instead of just coming up with linguistic rules.

I finally finished Avatar.  Some deep, treacly part of my soul wishes Zuko could have reconciled with that little boy in the Earth Kingdom. Or something. The silent Agni Kai with Azula (*sob*) was suitably epic, as was the coronation.  Also, I am totally a gen girl and at first couldn't understand how anybody could get worked up by romantic partnerships between 12-16-year-olds, and somehow I ended up desperately (if hopelessly) shipping Aang/Toph. What is wrong with me.  (As for Zuko, my only OTP is Zuko/Fire Nation. And possibly Zuko/honour.)

Anyway!  I don't know about you all, but when I'm working on something (or, as in this case, two somethings), I always have to fight off the temptation to just wander off and start working on one or two other things. Since I have two au_bigbangs going, this is Not Acceptable, and instead I've started jotting down my ideas for another day. And by "my ideas," I mean "ideas I'd like to see written by anybody, as long as it's halfway decent."

So all of this is to say that I'm not laying claim to any of these ideas or anything, it's just -- if anybody has ever wondered why I never finish anything, it's because I'm lazy and undisciplined my brain is a strange place.

'cause some puns are too obvious not to use.

When I first started planning out the Revenge of the Jedi universe, I was thrilled at all the possibilities.  I still am, really.  But it's a lot complicated now that I've given it some more thought.

Thank you, Snapefen, for inspiring me to write fic about Lily (more or less), and [personal profile] tulina , for prodding me into it.

Title: Just A Laugh (1/5)

Fanverse: Just A Laugh (AU from shortly before SWM; each piece covers a different point of view and a slightly different point in time)

Blurb: Mulciber targets Lily instead of Mary.

Pairings/warnings: injury, references to racism, somebody disliking Snape (sadly, this is not facetious)

Length: drabble (208 words)

I think we can all agree that it's incredibly annoying when fen bash characters for things that only exist in their special fennish copies of the books/movies/TV shows/comics/whatever -- flaws that don't exist/are exaggerated to the point of ridicule, things we're never told they did, random stuff the fen read in some fanfics somewhere, and generally symptoms of You Fail Reading Comprehension Forever.
